Governing Body

The Governing Body is made up of sixteen governors and has three main roles:

  • Strategic - setting the general direction of the school 
  • Critical Friend - working together with the Headteacher creating a clear understanding of the challenges faced in managing a school
  • Accountability - the Governing body must have a professional attitude and use its collective skills to benefit the learners.  It must gather and decide what is best for the school.
The governors meet, as a full group, at least once a term and much more often in committees - there are currently two committees:


  • Curriculum and Monitoring
  • Finance, Personnel and Premises
Anyone wishing to communicate with Governors may do so in writing through the clerk to the governors, Linda Critchley:
